Covid Catch Up Premium
Teachers and families across the country have provided extraordinary support to help children learn at home during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, for many children, the disruption caused by school closures will have had a negative impact on learning and wellbeing. The Department for Education (DfE) and Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) have supported schools with best practice guidance and approaches to ensure additional funding is utilised in the most effective way. Schools have the flexibility to use the funding in a way that best meets the identified needs of the children in their school and the aim of our approach at St Wilfrid’s is to raise the attainment of all pupils to close the gap created by COVID-19 school closures. Our COVID-19 Catch Up Plan looks at the barriers and plans to support pupils to make additional progress.
